Geert Wilders Ground Zero New York City 11th September 2010

Geert Wilders speaks about the proposed Cordoba mosque near Ground Zero.

Geert Wilders provided a quote from Abraham Lincoln that sums up my attitude toward Islam: "Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves."

Wilders points out that only Muslims are allowed in Mecca. Islam is a religion that explicitly denies basic rights to non-believers.

"Most Americans do not want this so-called Cordoba mosque to be built here because they understand that its not only a provocation but its also a humiliation. They understand the triumphant narrative of a mosque called, named after the great mosque of Cordoba which was constructed where a Christian cathedral stood before that land was conquered by Islam."

Great line:

"Ladies and gentlemen, we who have come to speak here today object to this mosque project because its promoter and its wealthy sponsors have never, never, ever suggested building a center to promote tolerance and interfaith understanding where its really needed: in Saudi Arabia in Mecca."

He goes on to point out that churches are not allowed in Saudi Arabia and the lack of reciprocity by Muslims.

He points out that the Muslims who support the 9/11 attack would feel triumphant and that we should never let them have that feeling about that attack. I say that's a very compelling argument.

Update: Here is the full text of Wilders' speech.

One of the biggest mosques in the world is in Rome, Italy, which of course is the seat of the Vatican, which claims to be the continuity of the church Peter founded after the crucifixion.
The mosque was built in the mid 1970s, and was sponsored by the Saudi royal family.The story goes that the Italian prime minister of the time had a meeting with a senior saudi royal.At that time Italy was facing acute balance of payments difficulties due to the oil price hike and badly needed bailing out with a large infusion of cash.The saudi prince mentioned building the mosque in Rome (it was of course a very deliberate symbol of dominance over the headquarters of world catholicism and pontifical pomp) with the proviso of a big cash injection for Italy.
The Italian agreed.
The Pope, in effect, could go to Hell.

The 1974 oil price shock was because the U.S. allowed OPEC to became a Cartel. Why? Nixon had gone off of the Gold Standard, and the Saudi's and Kissinger had come up with a scheme. Oil would be priced in dollars, those dollars in turn would be recycled into Western Banks, and ultimately back into the U.S. economy. Oil then backs up dollars, propping up said dollars value. The Saudi's in turn get protection with the U.S. military, they get front line military gear, and they are insured for oil transport thru sea lanes (U.S. Navy). The oil price shock meant lots of dollars flowing into Western Banks, who then fanned out that money into petrodollar loans. Mexico for example, got recategorized as emerging market, and thus became eligble for dollar loans. All countries that take out dollar loans fall into a debt trap. Our Mexinvasion can be traced back to the Kissinger/Banker scheme of this era.

Those Countries that need oil, need dollars to buy it. Italy needed a big cash injection because of the oil shock. Since Saudi's are flush with dollars, they can spend said dollars wherever they are accepted. The middle east main exports are oil and Islam, funded with our dollars. Mosque building is funded with petrodollars.

As an aside, Islam is weak economically. Societies that are un-free, produce little of value. We get off of the oil, we defund Islam.

India made a deal with us for Nuclear power. The Iranians were subsequently shocked that India dropped their deal with them for oil. The India deal is a model we could use for the world. Standardized nuclear power plants, mass produced and managed by the West. Countries that agree to the deal have to get off of hostile Islamic oil.
